Some time ago, I wrote an analysis of note-taking tools, especially for Evernote's product thinking: highly skeptical! The product manager of Evernote has an operational background.
Today, I received a tweet from the Evernote official account, saying that a professional audio recorder APP has been put on the shelves. This caught me off guard a bit. If I don't go to the bells and whistles, how can I do the right thing?
After my in-depth experience, my comprehensive evaluation of this software can't be said to be average, but only mediocre. Even, I fell into self-denial . How can I have expectations for the Impression team?
It's so inappropriate.
First of all, I will briefly introduce country email list this "professional recorder" software. I won't say too much. First, it's a matter of time, and second, it really doesn't have any functions.
The software of the Impression Recorder, in general, is the function castration of the voice-to-text version of the Evernote. There are actually three core functions, one is the recording function, the second is the voice transcription, and the third is the synchronous saving to the Evernote.
First, the recording function.
The recording function is generally passable: the interface is fresh, the sound quality is clear, paused, and the content can be marked. In terms of software function, it is one of the few bright spots, but from the outside, this function is already rotten. Almost every recorder software supports it, but for Impression Recorder, it can be regarded as a function that is rolled out. .
But it lacks many useful small functions, such as double-speed playback, cropping, etc.
Second, the voice transcription function.
The voice transcription function may be the core commercial function of Impression Recorder, but I think it is also the worst function, mainly in several aspects.
First, the business research is not in-depth enough, resulting in a rough business model.
I have ample evidence that their product managers must not have done a good competitive analysis. What is the age, the Qing Dynasty has long since died, the fees are actually charged according to the length of time, and there is still an expiration date, don't you look at the competing products, similar recorder software, 99 years of package, unlimited time, buy a two-year membership and then discount, full functions Six gods outfit, all kinds of postures unlock him, isn't it fragrant? But Impression Recorder is going to go against the market, and it has to be charged according to the duration. I especially want to ask, is it the courage given by Liang Jingru?
To be honest, the moment I opened the software, I felt that this was a castrated version of Evernote, a familiar style that can be seen everywhere. But I still have some expectations. I originally thought that since the function has been upgraded to a product, at least the charging mode will be changed. The result is disappointing and difficult to understand. Is this because the user experience is too good?
